The Best Free Montessori Curriculum List {Printable}

 

Let’s see. You homeschool and want to incorporate Montessori approach, but don’t know where to start. You could buy a homeschooling Montessori curriculum that can cost thousands of dollars. Or you could start here.

In this post, we share a free Montessori curriculum list. It is on the top 10 Montessori works that are perfect to introduce and work through for ages 3-6. They can be used with younger children, if they are ready.

The order of presentations may vary and you don’t have to introduce one at a time for each subject. In the printable, I list the order in which we introduced and used our materials at home. You can alter it in any way you prefer.

The beauty of this Montessori kindergarten curriculum is that you can cater it to your child’s needs and their interests. This can pass off as a Montessori curriculum for Preschool or a Montessori Kindergarten curriculum list. In reality, it is both since it covers ages 3-6.

Please remember to visit our resources hub for Montessori Curriculum 3-6 activities and lessons!

Montessori at Home

Do you love the Montessori Method, but wonder if you can do Montessori at home so you can homeschool your kids? You can absolutely do it! Teach Montessori with confidence with all of these lesson plans!

Here is a great post on the Homeschooling Pros and Cons that will be very insightful. Let’s get you started on the right foot. Take a look at this free Montessori preschool curriculum and in some posts, we offer free printable Montessori materials as well.

Print out this list. Laminate it to reuse with dry erase markers. Or simply print one list per child and get to work! Montessori curriculum materials can be pricey (including the Montessori albums). That’s a fact. Our intent is to make your life easier with this budget-friendly list.

With this, you will be set to have enough work for your little one for about a year. The activities vary from child to child and age to age. I say just play it by ear and go at your child’s unique pace.

Sensorial

When it comes to Montessori homeschool curriculum, this is a great list to start with. For our Sensorial materials, we use just Montessori curriculum because of the unique and specific skills they target. Plus, we simply love these materials!

Remember, these are all in the free printable list, so you don’t have to copy these down. 😉

  1. Cylinder Blocks are the best. My children have used these the most and used them for years.
  1. The Pink Tower is the best. You can see how we’ve used ours in this post: Montessori Sensorial: The Pink Tower.
  1. Brown Stair and Extensions.
  1. Red Rods re fantastic for learning counting and also for sense of weight and length.
  1. Ah! The Knobless Cylinders are my favorite!
  1. Sound Cylinders are fun because they can go along with a Music lesson. Here is our post: Sound Boxes Lesson.
  1. The Smell Bottles Lesson was fun. We used essential oils in this one, but you can use actual herbs and spices, too.
  1. Touch Boards and Tablets are great for sensing rough and smooth by using the sense of touch.
  1. Baric Tablets aren’t very popular, but they are a way to teach distinction in subtle weight differences. Our post: Baric Tablets Lesson
  1. The Color Tablets (Box 1, Box 2, Box 3 and Box 4) are our second favorites! Look at our Color Wheel Activities and our Montessori Color Activities.

Math

I love the Montessori Math addition lessons and would choose them any day over paper-and-pencil work.  Montessori Math lessons are hands-on and fun. Print the entire list in this post!

  1. Sandpaper Numbers: this is how my kids learned to trace and write their numbers.
  1. A Sand Tray is awesome to teach kids to trace numbers, but also letters and shapes!
  1. Red Rods: well, I already mentioned that they’re great for counting and also for measurement.
  1. Spindle Boxes are fun. They are perfect hands-on activities to learn to count and for fine motor skills practice.
  1. My daughter’s favorite work are the Numbers and Counters. You can see how we use them here: Introduction to Odd and Even Numbers.
  1. Bead System for Decimal Numbersare awesome, but they can be used for a ton of Math works. Golden Beads and Large Number Cards
  1. Learning Addition (Using Small Number Rods) was easy and fun: Addition using Small Number Rods and Addition Strip Board.
  1. Continuing with Addition using (Four Operations) really solidified the concept: Math Addition Lesson.
  1. My kids learned Subtraction with (Four Operations): Math Subtraction Lesson.

  10. The next level of Subtraction using a (Strip Board) was next: Subtraction using large bead frame, operations box, subtraction strip board.

Geography & History

We really love learning about different cultures from around world. Geography is our favorite subject of all. We always go to our Montessori curriculum for kindergarten first. We want to see what the kids are supposed to be learning and in what order.

Here is a great starter list.

  1. First, we did some Land, Water, Air Activities. Look at these 2 blog posts: Basic Land, Water & Air Lesson and 3 Advanced Lessons.
  1. Next, we learn about The Globe. We talk about water and land, about continents and where we live, and so on.
  1. The Continents come next. Here are Several lessons and free printables.
  1. Then, we study about The Planisphere and Night Sky. We have two awesome sets of activities: Astronomy Lessons and Outer Space Studies.
  1. Landforms and WaterformsLandforms intro lesson
  1. Flags of the World are my son’s favorite. This is actually our top post of all-time: Flags of the world lessons. Also check out Some European flags.
  1. Our United States Studies have been the most extensive. We share them here: Tour of the USA, Drawing USA mapAmerican coinsUSA studies.
  1. Learning one’s personal information (address, phone number, parent names, etc) is paramount! Grab this freebie to get started: Home Address.
  1. Next, we learned about the differences in objects from the Past and present 3-part card lesson.
  1. The Calendar encompasses a lot, not just the actual calendar. Sense of Time  The Calendar  Holidays and Observances

Language Arts

Are you convinced that the Montessori method of teaching is the absolute best? If so, then you will want to use some (or all) of their materials to teach Language Arts.

Check out the list and some resources that you will find helpful.

  1. Start out with teaching and practicing Object Names. The earlier, the better: Lessons for toddlers in preparation for this (great for toddler Montessori curriculum ideas)
  1. Metal Insets are the best because they have multiple uses. Here is a post that is a comparable activity with geometric cabinet.
  1. Sandpaper Letters were great for learning the shapes of letters and learn to trace them: Sandpaper Letters Lessons.
  1. A Sand Tray comes in handy for learning to trace letters, both upper and lower case.
  1. The Large Moveable Alphabet is so much fun! Take a look at our posts: Alphabet lessons and Forming words lessons!
  1. Name Objects and teach Beginning Letters to start discerning letter sounds in words.
  1. Writing letters and short words on a line is an important skill. We show you how we do it here: Forming words lessons.
  1. The Pink Material goes first in all the color materials. Here are some Pink material resources.
  1. The Blue Material comes next. It teaches more about letters, words and sentences.
  1. The Farm is fun. It is a hands-on way to give kids a tangible Introduction to nouns, verbs, articles, etc
